Effective June 26, 2021, Red Cedar Gymnastics has closed permanently.
Dear Current and Former RCG Friends, Families and Athletes,
It is with tremendous sadness I announce that Red Cedar Gymnastics, L.L.C. closed permanently at the end of day on Saturday, June 26, 2021. We have always strived to do everything we could and should to be a quality, safe program for our athletes, families, staff, and community. While I will always be exceptionally proud of the smart, safe and innovative manner RCG has operated during the past 15 months and grateful for the support and trust of everyone, the financial strain of COVID was ultimately too great.
Individuals with credits and/or payments towards future classes, activities and events can expect to receive refunds by July 1, 2021.
One of the things about RCG I am most proud of is our commitment and ability to accommodate and individualize experiences for different types of children, including those with special needs, as well as family circumstances so that athletes can experience gymnastics as it works for them in a safe, successful, positive, and nurturing environment. I know that for some in our program, our closing may mean the end of gymnastics, and this hangs heavy on my heart. I am hopeful there is an answer or opportunity out there we just haven’t realized.
The past 22 years have been truly remarkable. In that time, well over 22,000 children and hundreds of coaches and staff have passed through our 3 gyms. It has been a privilege to have met and worked with so many amazing people. Each of you have shaped, guided, and taught me so much and allowed me to provide security and comfort to my family. There are no words to express how incredibly honored and grateful I am for having had the opportunity to be a part of your lives, if only for a moment.
Several storage containers, my hard drive and mind are full of pictures and memories of my life at RCG, and I treasure every single one of them. My reverence for your children, families, my staff, and gymnastics will continue always. I have no idea what the future holds for me but, most of all, I pray it involves the chance for our lives to intersect again someday. RCG grew out of the profound love I felt for a group of 8 young athletes and the sport of gymnastics. Those athletes are now grown, successful and even mothers themselves. The decision to open our gym was impulsive and based on an impossible dream, still it led to a 20+ year career I have relished almost every second of. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your support of me, of RCG and for allowing us bring gymnastics into your lives. It has been the most amazing adventure and I wish each of you every happiness.
With deepest appreciation, gratitude, and affection,
